Amid renewed debate over the Congress's prime ministerial candidate, the party on Tuesday expressed confidence that 'only' Rahul Gandhi will become the prime minister of India and take the country forward.

"All the workers and leaders of the Congress wish from the core of their heart that Rahul Gandhi becomes the prime minister of the country. We are confident that only Rahul will become the prime minister of the country," Congress spokesperson Rashid Alvi told reporters.
